NBA community sends support to Gordon Hayward following serious leg injury

Gordon Hayward suffered a serious leg injury just minutes into his first game in a Boston Celtics uniform.

Immediately after Hayward went down, players on both the Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers stood in shock and disbelief.

Outside of Cleveland, the NBA community sent messages of support and love to Hayward.

Paul George and Shaun Livingston, who suffered two of the most gruesome leg injuries in recent memory, were among the first to react.

NFL stars J.J. Watt and Odell Beckham Jr., both of whom recently saw their NFL seasons end due to injury, also sent love Hayward’s way.

And after Fox Sports personality and noted LeBron-hater Skip Bayless tweeted out a fresh hot take, NBA players were quick to put him in his place.
